Around 2 weeks ago I was scammed for around 5kg. I submitted all the necessary evidence (a video i posted on youtube), but I have not received any reply from the Moderators. The only thing I get is an automated response stating that either my ticket was getting closed if I did not reply within 5 days, or the case has been forwarded and is still under "investigation."

So what exactly happens to scammers? Do they actually get banned or does CC allow them to get away scott-free? I was just scammed again twice in a spam of 10 minutes, I even uploaded videos of the transaction!

most professional game admins will never tell players how the reported scammers have been dealt with. And no compensations will ever be given to the scammed victims, for obvious reasons.

most likely, after reviewing the evidences they would decide if they can prove beyond a shadow of doubt that the scammer has violated the rules and then make the necessary ban.

But in many (or most i'd say) cases, they can't prove that, so scammers walks free.

To be scammed twice in mere span of 10 minutes... you really are something.

CC Messenger system has a feature that automatically closes any inquiry that does not have a reply (for about 2weeks? dunno), so the correct usage when responding to CC is to reply even if there is no reason to reply anymore, just so that the ticket won't be closed.


e.g
CC: "Thank you for submitting your report. We will forward this to some department"

you might think
*WOW CC is very nice to hear my report. This is very good so that the scammer will be banned*
But you didn't reply because you thought CC will message you again about the status of the scammer banning. But NO. Because CC will close the ticket after expiry period because you implicitly declared the issue to be already resolved (by not replying).

Conclusion:
CC: "Thank you for submitting your report. We will forward this to some department"

User: "Okay sir I will wait for the status"
Doing this will make the cherry messenger system keep this ticket open.

LESSON: Reply to Gardener everytime you get a reply if the issue still has not been resolved.

I've seen quite a number of peeps getting banned already but imo majority of scammers are not getting punished and quite a decent amount actually gets away with it sadly.
(probably because of various reasons such as no evidence or the one that got scammed is at fault but still...)

Most go unpunished because victims often don't report or files report lacking in detail, I still see a couple of them lurking around preying on DNP to gold trades every now and then but some that are well known scammers still manage to get off, whats more unironically funny is that now, even apprenticeship can subjected to scamming, pathetic, people now run off even with just 300 gold.
